About this recipe: Homemade chocolate that melts in your mouth! It is made with only natural ingredients. Sweetness can be tweaked to taste, and add-in ingredients and combinations are endless...try adding orange zest, peanut butter, dried coconut, chopped nuts, cinnamon or cayenne pepper. Add after melting coconut oil, cocoa powder, honey, and vanilla together. Enjoy!
I wouldn't recommended that you use this chocolate for baking. It's best kept refrigerated and eaten as a treat.
I was looking for another recipe when I stumbled across this one. Seeing that I had all the ingredients, I decided to try a batch. Wow, are these good!!! I can't believe how simple they are. To prevent the honey from sinking to the bottom of the chocolate, here is what you do. Mix the oil and cocoa powder. Stick this mixture in the fridge until it starts to thicken. Now you can stir in the honey and it won't 'sink' because the coconut oil is no longer liquified. I added a little less than 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper, and a couple pinches of chipotle powder. I didn't have candy molds or a pliable tray, so I lined a small plastic container with foil. Once hardened, I was able to lift everything out of the container and cut into 8 pieces. Heavenly!!! - 30 Mar 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was surprisingly good! I used a whisk to mix the cocoa, honey and vanilla into the melted coconut oil, then poured it into a foil-lined loaf pan (this size pan created the perfect thickness) and sprinkled in some toasted pecans. Chilled for about 1 1/2 hours, popped the foil out and cut the chocolate into pieces. Very creamy and definitely melt-in-your-mouth! Will make this again and again! Great recipe for a healthy treat! - 07 Apr 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I tried this not knowing what to expect. I loved it! In addition to the honey, I added 1 1/2 tablespoons of Agave nectar, I like it a little bit sweeter. Finally I added 1/2 tsp of sea salt and 1/3 C chopped almonds. Fabulous! I only made mine 1/4" thick and I didn't have a problem with the honey sinking to the bottom, as i read in another review. Thank you for the recipe! - 09 May 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
